Are y’all paying attention to the great ATG News Channel postings? Was recently perusing a copy of How Books Came to America: The Rise of the American Book Trade which is part of the Penn State Series in the History of the Book. Did you notice that it was a book of the week for Against the Grain back in May?

 And we just posted Wrap-Up of Publishers for Development 2013: Exploring the Importance of Research for Global Development by Abby Clobridge
